Hunter Dickinson, Kevin McCullar Jr. lead No. 5 Kansas past No. 4 UConn in last-minute thriller

LAWRENCE, Kan. — It was a top-five battle early in the season as No. 5 Kanas defeated No. 4 UConn 69-65 in a sold-out Allen Fieldhouse on Friday.

UConn never led in the first half and cut it to two points halfway through the second half before senior guard Tristen Newton hit two 3s in consecutive possessions, putting the Huskies up by three with under 10 minutes in the game.

The game came down to the wire and it was a one-possession game with 23 seconds to go after Newton converted on a layup in the lane.
